As an employee of USD259 myself, I would like to see our "self-funded" plan step up to the plate and allow Coventry to pay for Kyle's bone marrow transplant. People are blaming Coventry for the denial, when Coventry is only administering the plan set forth by USD259! When one realizes that Kyle will ALWAYS be covered under his parent's insurance plan, and that the insurance will cover him aggressively fighting the skin cancer that will eventually take his life without this procedure, why won't they try to help make this miracle happen? Blue Cross/Blue Shield has now covered the procedure for 3 children with EB. Will the Hicks family have to hire an attorney before this will be resolved? If Frank Carney (founder of Pizza Hut) can step up, it's embarassing to know that USD259 where Kyle's grandmother retired as a principal, his mother is currently employed, and where Kyle is a high school student, won't follow suit.

i am very sorry for you. i pray you get better.
- kyle, you look horrible- don't take it in a meanful way-.
my mom died of breast cancer. it tore me down.
i went into foster care because my dad doesn't care about me.i ran away from foster care after they tried to get me special help. they thought i was crazy because i was suicidle and threatened to kill myself. i even cut myself. they found me on the road trying to find the right moment to jump in front of a vehicle. i got special help...
what i am trying to say is that if you feel bad becauseof what occured of you and what you look like, don't get depressed and become of self destuction.
i wish of you many blessings!!
